Man accused of stalking head of Las Vegas police board: ‘I’ll kill that white [expletive]’

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A man allegedly threatened the head of Las Vegas Metro police’s Citizen Review Board, coming to her office several times and reportedly saying, “I’ll kill that white [expletive],” according to documents the 8 News Now Investigators obtained.

Last week, a Clark County grand jury indicted Sammeon Lewis, 25, on a charge of aggravated stalking for alleged incidents occurring over several years toward Julie Kraig, the executive director of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s Citizen Review Board. The independent, volunteer-driven board reviews complaints made against officers and reviews department investigations.

The board’s office is located in a separate building from police in downtown Las Vegas.

Metro police arrested Lewis on Jan. 29, records said.

In 2021, Lewis filed a complaint to the board regarding an allegation involving a corrections officer at the Clark County Detention Center, documents said. Investigators believe Lewis was upset with the board and Kraig after not receiving “millions of dollars” from his reported issue.

Shortly after, Lewis allegedly left threatening voicemails for Kraig and sent emails, saying “he was going to get ‘Chucky on her [expletive]’ with a photo of Lewis posting next to a Chucky doll,” police said. Due to the threats, the board began locking its public office door.

Lewis then “continued to come to the officers of the [Citizens Review Board] and would scream through the door profanities,” police said. “During one incident, Kraig had left the office to use the restroom in the hallway of the building, Lewis was standing on the other side of the door and chased Kraig down the hallway. Kraig frantically opened the women’s restroom door and locked herself in the restroom and called security.”

In response to the continued threats, Kraig applied for and was granted a temporary restraining order against Lewis, documents said. The board also installed security cameras due to the threats.

In January 2024, Lewis returned to the office, tearing documents off a wall and ripping them into pieces, police said. Officers then confronted Lewis, who allegedly shouted, “I’ll kill that white [expletive] Julie,” police said.

Kraig then again filed a restraining order against Lewis. On Jan. 27, Lewis returned to the office, spray painting “White [expletive] Die” on a window, police said. Police then arrested Lewis outside of the building several days later.

During his initial court appearance, Judge Rebecca Saxe set Lewis’ bail at $20,000, noting Lewis’ court-appointed attorney nor prosecutors made an argument regarding his custody status. Several days later, Judge Melissa Stratton increased bail to $80,000, records said. Lewis’ case was then forwarded to competency court. Last month, Judge Christy Craig ruled Lewis competent to stand trial, meaning he understood the charges against him.

Though Lewis remained in custody as of Wednesday, an arrest warrant was filed Tuesday on a new charge of intimidating a public official.

It was unclear when Lewis would appear next in court.
